Love is like a wildfire; It knows no boundaries.- Em


Life is precious,
Don't you see?

I look at you,
You look at me.

You see the hate,
I see the sick.

Your condescending tone
Full of it.

You wonder why i don't say "hi."
Ask yourself why.

You did.
I'm done.
You've had your fun.

I see the sick,
You see the hate.

You look at me,
I Won't look at you.

Don't you see?
Life is precious.

I Won't Waste mine on you.

Love the rhyme scheme! It makes the poem flow well, and the story behind it is amazing and so symbolic! There's a great message/theme of "life being precious" and you have executed it well through your poem. Awesome!

Your poem is really good! Do you mind checking out a short story I wrote? If you can't find it, it's called Hidden. Comment and review!
